This is a wonderful smoothie that I use often as a meal replacement. Adding the Green's Plus makes it even healthier than it is already and makes you feel great! I came up with it myself as I have not found a smoothie I have truly loved yet..... until now!
- Put berries and juice in a blender, blend thoroughly.
- Add banana and blend.
- Add Yogurt and blend.
- Add Green's Plus and Blend.
This was a hit at my house! 5-Alive was a favorite drink of mine growing up but I haven't seen it in the stores in years, and couldn't now either, so I used a tropical mix of pineapple, orange & mango. I don't know what Green's Plus is, but we all take vitamins according to our individual needs anyway so I wasn't too worried about leaving it out. DH, who is not a smoothie drinker, even had a second helping of this one! Thanks for sharing, Chiquita! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef.

Great smoothie! I couldn't find Five Alive so I used V8Splash Tropical Blend. The berries I used were only blueberries. These flavors combined to make a yummy smoothie - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
Most of the time when I make a smoothie I just combine all the ingredients & blend, as I did with this one! I'd never before heard of Five Alive juice blends, but managed to track down the all-citrus one, & it was a great base for this drink! However, since I take a blend of vitamin tablets everyday, I opted out of the vitamin powder here! Still ended up with A WONDERFULLY TASTY SMOOTHIE!
